DAN'S SONG

Hook
Yo I write this song
this is life for so many
call it right or wrong
they return with hearts heavy
see what they've seen
should be seen by not any
when they heard they're moving out
they complied, they were ready
x2

Verse 1
separation, deprivation
coming home and see them faces
separate nation, escalation
some in coma can't see faces
desert blazing, or it's raining
on patrol they walk those paces
feet are aching as they break in
standard issue boots with laces
mind is stagnant or it's racing
when they're in those different places
they have waited been so patient
hoping for a change in status
families home, counting days and
trying to seek out that what's sacred
hopes dreams now are tainted
cause they all are separated
every day that they awaken
see the world desecrated
they must stand up, they must face it
find the strength to not be shaken
feel alone feel forsaken
like this this time may be wasted
holiday they cannot take it
is it worth it, some debate it
dream of home smell the fragrance
of the kitchen oven baking
grab the remote, change the station
nope not now cause they are stationed
time is ticking time is taking
it's toll this time is tainted
yup and time will tell
this is tough now ain't it?

Verse 2
try to make sense
of what they saw in those days
some are left with pride
and some are left with pain
and some are just forgotten
they lie in the rain
they felt at the top
now the bottom again
by ground, by sea
or the movement of a plane
life did pivot
it will never be the same
one thing is for sure
never did it for the fame
this is life in the realest
nothing like a game
fathers and mothers and brothers
sisters and cousins and others
waiting for those letters
that are sent to their name
fathers and mothers and brothers
sisters and cousins and others
wishing for a phone call
from oceans away
fathers and mothers and brothers
sisters and cousins and others
longing for the chance
to greet their family and stay
fathers and mothers and brothers
sisters and cousins and others
dreaming of back home
yeah, that'll be the day
